MANILA, Philippines - Before he died, Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo was investigating juteng lords who are allegedly using the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes' Small Town Lottery (STL) program as a front for their illegal operation.
Robredo had long wanted jueteng gone because of the corruption it promotes among local government and police officials.

As part of his report to the Senate, Robredo said jueteng operators and collectors use STL to avoid arrest.

Robredo's report also shows that jueteng lords earn more when they use STL as a front. - ANC, Prime Time, September 13, 2012
